  • Tucker Carlson: The left wants to run the entire US. Let San Francisco be a cautionary tale

    Fox News ^ | August 22, 2019 | Tucker Carlson
    The Democratic Party wants to run the United States -- not just the decaying urban centers and gentrifying coastal pockets, Williamsburg, Baltimore, both Portlands. No. They want to run the entire thing -- all 50 states, all 31,000 counties, all 320 million people. Progressives want complete control of all of that very much, including your neighborhood. That's their goal in the coming election. What will happen if they achieve that goal? We don't have to guess. Instead, we can assess a city they already have complete control over and have for a long time -- San Francisco, California. Now if...

    Complete Headline: San Francisco board rebrands 'convicted felon' as 'justice-involved person,' sanitizes other crime lingo Crime-ridden San Francisco has introduced new sanitized language for criminals, getting rid of words such as "offender" and "addict" while changing "convicted felon" to "justice-involved person." [Snip] The local officials say the new language will help change people's views about those who commit crimes. [Snip] [F]rom now on a convicted felon or an offender released from custody will be known as a "formerly incarcerated person," or a "justice-involved" person or just a "returning resident." A juvenile "delinquent" will now be called a "young person with...

The obvious answer is that she’s been there for a very long time....

    Kill every fascist,” mass shooter Connor Betts declared in 2018 on twitter, echoing a rallying cry of ANTIFA ideologues. Over the next year, his tweets became increasingly violent. “Nazis deserve death and nothing else,” he tweeted last October. We have been warning about the US domestic terror group known as ANTIFA for quite a few years now. Like the Ku Klux Klan, and because of their cowardly nature, they wear masks and hoods to hide their identities. The KKK wear white masks, and ANTIFA wears black masks, while both groups commit acts of mayhem while claiming to be something they’re...

    The Wall Street Journal has a story today about a former Google engineer named Kevin Cernekee. Cernekee, who hasn’t told his story publicly before, claims that he was fired last year after battling they company for years over his conservative views. Before moving to the Bay Area in 2015 to work on Google’s laptop lines, Mr. Cernekee says, the region’s dominant liberalism struck him as “just like something to occasionally read online and laugh at. At Google, I jumped right into the middle of it, where, holy crap, these people actually exist.”Early on, he stood up for a colleague...
  • Seesaws built on US-Mexico border let kids from both sides play

    Children on either side of the US-Mexico border played together despite a fence dividing them — thanks to three pink seesaws erected by a pair of California professors. The teeter-totters on the outskirts of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juárez in Mexico are the handiwork of Ronald Rael, an architecture professor at the University of California, Berkley, and Virginia San Fratello, an associate design professor at San José State University, The Guardian reported. “One of the most incredible experiences of my and @vasfsf’s career bringing to life the conceptual drawings of the Teetertotter Wall from 2009 in an event filled...

    When a dozen of conservatism’s best minds take on Socialism and expose it for the utopian fraud it is, attention must be paid. In a brief foreword to a special issue of National Review, Editor-in-Chief Richard Lowry admitted that many conservatives thought socialism in America had been “vanquished” after the collapse of Soviet Communism 30 years ago. But as T. S. Eliot insisted, “There is no such thing as a Lost Cause because there is no such thing as a Gained Cause.” The experts examine socialism in its many guises, beginning with Charles Cooke’s blunt assessment that socialism is not...

    Now, along comes Ryszard Legutko, a Polish professor of philosophy and leading politician, with a better answer. His book, translated by Teresa Adelson, “The Demon in Democracy: Totalitarian Temptations in Free Societies” (Encounter), methodically shows the surprising but substantial similarities between Soviet-style communism and modern liberalism as defined by Sweden or the European Union or Barack Obama. First, the ideologues retreat into fantasy which they fervently try to impose on unwilling subjects. Communists make colossal efforts to convince their vassals that they prosper far more than those wretches living in capitalist countries; liberals turn two genders into 71 or make...

    Americans should be rallying together because of her success with the team, instead she is helping to divide us even further. She uses profanity to express her hatred towards the country and her character really shows when she speaks about President Trump. Rapinoe turned down an invite from the administration before it even happened. Rapinoe believes that her and her teammates should receive the same pay as the men’s team. She does not mention anything about the fact that the men’s team brings in a lot more revenue for the organization than her team does. Rapinoe is much like AOC,...

    Long before President Donald Trump exposed media corruption by popularizing the term “fake news,” my family was subjected to a battle of deceptive reporting about my sister, Terri Schiavo. One-sided “journalism” continues today, as demonstrated by a recent Tampa Bay Times article titled, “Inside the Terri Schiavo case: Pinellas judge who decided her fate opens up,” by Leonora LaPeter Anton. Ms. Anton writes about Judge George Greer of Pinellas County Florida Circuit Court, who ruled that Terri’s estranged husband and legal guardian, Michael Schiavo, could remove her food and water (via feeding tube). Greer’s decision was enforced on March 18,...

    There was a time when America’s big city mayors were real leaders. While few of them we so arrogant as to claim the title of “America’s Mayor” as did Rudy Giuliani, as a breed they exemplified the “take charge,” “get it done” attitude that voters respected and appreciated. Now, in the Snowflake Era that is seeing our country’s college campuses turn into adult day care centers, a number of elected mayors have transitioned to timid, “touchy-feely” office holders afraid to take bold action to protect their citizens and the institutions within their jurisdictions.  Portland, Oregon’s Ted Wheeler personifies this new...

    The LGBTQ+P for Pedophile Movement is nothing if not smart, clever and calculating. So smart in fact that they are succeeding despite the lukewarm protests Drag Queen Story Hour has received. First they had the audacity to invade public libraries across America and have pedophile men wearing dresses read stories to little children. And yes, many of these drag queens are registered sex offenders. Then once they were able to do all that, now they have activated Step #2 in their grand and evil scheme. What’s that, you ask? Careful, you may not really want to know the answer once...

    AJO, Ariz. — Ever since federal agents arrested a local activist for helping two illegal immigrants in this parched desert town near the Mexican border last year, residents are thinking twice about being good Samaritans. “I guess I’ll have to start asking for ID if I want to give anyone a glass of water,” said Jose Castillo, 80, who has lived his whole life in this former copper mining enclave, where temperatures top 110 degrees in summer. The retired mechanic belongs to Ajo Samaritans, a local Catholic aid organization that often leaves jugs of water in the desert for Central...

That was one day after the Russian leader praised the president of the United States for his nationalist world views and vigorously declared the days of the West's liberals are dying if not already dead.

    by Brian Hayes According to a ruling by Obama-appointed federal Judge Beth Bloom, it is not a crime for an illegal alien to use fake federal documents to obtain a state license. Rubman Ardon Chinchilla is a roofer who lives in Broward County, Florida and has been illegally living in the US for decades. Chinchilla got busted using fake immigration documents in order to obtain a Florida driver’s license and was indicted on two counts of violating federal law. Chinchilla was one of 20 illegal aliens who was arrested for using an “Order of Supervision,” — this is a specific...

    Suicide rates among young people are rising, reaching the highest levels since 2000, a study published Tuesday finds. But most alarming, the researchers said, was a 21 percent rise in boys aged 15-19 dying by suicide in 2017 from the year before. "Previous studies talked more of an increase in female suicide, but what we’re showing is that rates among males are also increasing rapidly," Oren Miron, the study's lead author and a research associate in biomedical informatics at Harvard Medical School, told NBC News.

Tuesday’s invocation that started the meeting of the Kenai Peninsula Borough also spurred a protest outside the southern Alaska borough’s administration building that drew 40 people, The Peninsula Clarion newspaper reported . Protesters held signs saying “reject Satan and his works” and “know Jesus and his love.” During her invocation, Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana said, “That which will not bend, must break, and that...
